Maxim mocked

But this remark cannot apply to Australia with its plethora of politician and control merchants bent on interfering in people’s lives.

For a country of 22 million there are far too many “pollies” all sucking on the taxpayer teat and, not happy with their remuneration, some seek to pad out their entitlements with dubious claims.

Surely, such actions are fraud. It makes mockery of the maxim that no one is above the law.
